Timor and Bowenvale

Timor and Bowenvale are about 8 km north-west of Maryborough and 140 km north-west of Melbourne.

Both are in the vicinity of the junction of the Bet Bet and Timor Creeks, Bowenvale 2 km south-west of the junction and Timor north-east of the junction.

Timor is the earlier of the two, beginning as Coxtown when gold was found there in 1856. (Cox was a butcher and hotel keeper). Coxtown was apparently renamed after Timor Creek.
